Thanks to Reuben Powell

Now One Foot is all but tidied up, we’d like to take a moment here at Mutate Britain to big up Reuben Powell, a very talented artist. He’s supported us in more than one way ever since the first show, paints Oil on Tin and has been through more than his fair share of trouble to make his work as distinctive and interesting as it is. We suggest you have a look at his website. Thanks to Reuben for the genius Sidecar Coffees and for seeing London from angles we never spotted…

Chu’s genius goes straight over your head…

Right at the start of the show Chu came and painted an amazing piece of perspective painting that you have to look at through a mirror he also installed. Most people are missing it – not least because of Joe’s massive chopper (ahem).  You should have a look at the video and 360 degree images on Chu’s ‘site HERE.

Absolute attention to detail and innovation – what other artist you know investigates the inside of the structure they’re painting on?! Here’s an image of the finshed piece but get down to the last weekend of the show and see it for yourself… if you can find the magic mirror!

Treatment rooms in action

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on December 15, 2009 by mutate

Treatment rooms have been hard at work… come and join us for the unveiling of this amazing community mural this Wednesday 16th Dec at 7PM. The piece covers the history of the area, the events and most of all the the people.

The Revolution Will Be Ceramicised…..at least under the Westway!! This Wednesday, 16th Dec at 7pm.

Carrie Reichardt aka The Baroness and Miquita Oliver will unveil the UK’s most radical ceramic mural at Mutate Britain’s ‘One Foot Under the Grove’ exhibition. Artists from The Treatment Rooms Collective along side volunteers from the local community have spent the last few weeks making a huge new mural in a previously unused space under the Westway, next to Portobello market.

You are invited to come along and help us celebrate this important new addition of public art to one of London’s most culturally significant neighbourhoods. This mural is made in loving memory of two of our fallen comrades, Evie Doggart and Ed Maiden. We are hoping that members of their families will be present as we unveil plaques for them. We will also have a flash mob punk choir present to sing at the event. Please come along, support our work and see cutting edge craftivism in action.

With thanks Carrie Reichardt aka The Baroness Co-Founder of the Treatment Rooms – The UK’s only ceramic house of resistance. www.carriereichardt.co.uk

Old school dons bring back the graf to Mutate!

Posted in Art, one foot in the grove with tags , , , , , , , , , , on December 10, 2009 by jack lomax

We’re well happy to have armoured our outer shell with some legendary London writers. The outside of Mutate is now owned by Towns RT, Achy GFS, Fuel CCD, Cazbee DSS, Skore TRC, Crok, Mear, Elate, Zadok and Don… and what a job they’ve done representing all styles and generations – our thanks and big ups to them all. The top image is Cazbee’s Cazism the legendary window down on Hammersmith and City line train from nearly 20 years ago – a historic piece from the Capitals rich graffiti history – if only this rolling stock was still running past the show!

Inside the show is an epic piece by Elate, one of his best ever it literally rips the wall to bits and would kill anyone standing in it’s way! Check it and find him online here. See if you can find the other Elate at the show – it’s a cupboard full of surprises more to come on that one! Thanks to Elate and Hersha Petal for the pics…
